Fashionistas couldn’t sign their checks fast enough at the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s Super Saturday L.A. on Nov. 18, when Paramount’s backlot was transformed into a designer tag sale that would’ve made The View girls’ heads spin. Started by former Harper’s Bazaar editor Liz Tilberis, who succumbed to the disease last year, and hosted by L’Oreal, INSTYLE, and Tracey Ullman’s website,, the benefit drew such celeb bargain hunters as Calista Flockhart, Christian Slater, and Milla Jovovich, who laid down $1,200 for a Pucci dress. Host Ullman holds the cause close to her heart: ”I knew Liz, and she was a big inspiration to me. We’ve lost a lot of funny girls like Gilda Radner and Madeline Kahn to this.” As for her auction tactic in raising money? ”Oh, I just bully people into it.”
